How are you accommodating patients during Covid-19?
As of now, we are conducting appointments both in-person and virtually (via telephone or HIPAA-compliant video software) for psychotherapy and executive function skills training. This may change due to doctor and/or patient preference or insurance regulations (Medicare only) at any time.
For assessment, the initial intake and feedback session can be done in-person or virtually. The actual assessment portion, however, must be completed in-person.
Please know that we take every precaution to keep our doctors and patients safe, including mask use, frequent sanitizing of equipment, and large office space to facilitate social distancing.
Do you have evening or weekends appointments?
We understand the complexity of people’s schedules, especially teenagers and adults who may work or provide care for others during the day. Evening appointments for psychotherapy and executive function skills training are limited but available for both in-person and teletherapy.
Due to the nature of the task, assessments are typically conducted during the morning to minimize the impact of fatigue, which can negatively impact results. In special circumstances, assessments may be conducted on the weekends based on availability. Please give us a call at 201-383-5056 or e-mail email@example.com for availability and schedule.
My child was referred for a neuropsychological assessment by their pediatrician/school. How should I proceed? What are the next steps?
We understand that the evaluation process can seem overwhelming. We are here to assist you every step of the way. Please give us a call at 201-383-5056 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss your child’s specific needs, what you are hoping to learn about your child once the assessment is completed, what you need the final report to do (e.g., classroom accommodations, standardized testing accommodations such as SAT/ACT, GRE, MCAT, LSAT), and scheduling.
Do you take insurance?
We accept Traditional Medicare. If you have a commercial insurance policy other than Medicare, please check to see if you have out-of-network (OON) benefits so you can submit for reimbursement. We provide all of the necessary paperwork for you to do so.
Are your offices wheelchair accessible?
Yes. They are located on the first floor in Building C, near the front door. There is also ample parking on-site close to the entrance. Parking is free.
Do you prescribe medication?
No. If we feel that a medication evaluation is warranted, we have close working relationships with adult and child psychiatrists/nurse practitioners we can refer you to and collaborate with throughout the course of your treatment.
